Buttery Chicken fried rice
by Phil Vlasak
Chicken fried rice is one of the dishes you can find in almost every
Asian restaurant. It looks like a normal fried rice with small diced pieces
of chicken, soy
sauce, minced celery, peas, carrots, and most important, white rice. It is
flavorful and delicious and is nice to serve with almost anything, but it
is time consuming to make.
One man has attempted to do a variation that I wish to talk about.
The version is stripped down to its basics which enhances its good parts
while eliminating anything un-necessary.
Most recipes now list the ingredients and while boring, it probably makes it
easier to collect all the parts before mixing them together.
1/2 tablespoon of garlic ginger sauce,
6 pats butter
1 cup of frozen peas, cooked
1/4 fresh onion, minced, or fried onion pieces.
1/2 cup of slivered roasted almonds,
1/2 pounds of fried, cubed chicken meat,
3 cups of cooked white rice,
Starting with the chicken. People used to buy a live chicken and have it
butchered, plucked and roasted.
Our chef cuts down the time of preparation by purchasing a nice box of
crispy fried chicken from his local supermarket.
To make it simple, he gets a complete fried chicken in a box, divided into
eight pieces so there is enough for four servings.
If cooked properly, It should be so juicy you could pick the meat off the
bones with your fingers.
He suggests eating the two breasts and two legs for lunch which would take
care of the first two servings. For this recipe, the chicken should cool so
they could be
After washing his hands, the chef uses the remaining two wings and two
thighs, pealing off the crisp skin and digging his fingers under the
dripping chicken meat, separating it from the bones. He makes sure the
pieces of meat do not have any small bones which is the most challenging
dealing with the wings. He tares the chicken pieces until they are small but
not too small, creating pieces about the size of a dice or one half inch
If in a hurry he suggests using chicken fingers for the hell of it.
The chef starts by mixing one cup of water and one cup of minute rice in a
six cup dish, then microwaving it for four minutes on high.
While cooking the rice, he minces the onion into fine pieces.
If he is in a rush he just uses fried onion pieces.
Next, he cooks the frozen pees for three minutes in the microwave on high.
When done, he layers the chicken, onion and pees on the bed of rice.
Then he sprinkles the slivered almonds on top and spreads the six teaspoons
of butter over the top of the dish.
And finally he flows the garlic ginger sauce over the almonds.
The chef cooks the mixture in the microwave on high for three minutes or
until he hears it sizzling.
The dish serves about one Chubby Wubby Tub Tub , or two average adults, or
four snotty kids, or eight fashion models, or sixteen Anorexias.
There will be thunderous cheering as the tender and juicy chicken dinner is
poured into the
plates. When eating the Buttery Chicken fried rice dish, the succulent blend
of flavors will
likely continue in the mouth for an hour. It will be literally like eating
food fit for the gods. It will be a joyous experience to be eating this dish
with loved ones and friends. The food will be so good it will make all run
into the ocean singing happy songs. Everyone making this dish will all
dance and sing and happy music will continue into the night.
After spending years of preparing and eating it, each time he makes the
dish it still brings him joy.
